Here we shall find occasional new items on the theme of my first two books – LOVING THE BOY and THE POWER OF LOVE… i.e. GAY love. No significant porn, but guys showing their love and caring for one another in every which way. There may be occasional nudity and intimate images.
New Items will always be added immediately beneath this notice.

Expressions and Suggestions of ‘Gayness’
August 19th 2018
“No position is taken here as to the sexuality of those appearing in our pictures”
What Is ‘Gay Expression’?
August 9th 2018
This is a selection of pictures which will ‘appeal’ to gay guys, I’m sure. Whether the guys in the pictures, and the activities they are engaged in, are ‘gay’ is not always obvious and, from our own observations in the gym, by the pool and so forth, in an environment where nudity is permissible, it is clear that many straight guys enjoy the ‘feel’ of what many may regard as ‘gay’ behaviour.
I’m rambling a bit, so I’ll stop there are get on with the pictures. Be aware that there are naked images here and some full-frontal ones at the end of the set (so you can look away if you wish but I bet most will not).
A ‘French Kiss’ on the beach? Gay…
Sunbathers clearly ‘into’ each other…gay!
An unexpected kissing situation… looks like ‘fun’ in the washroom… gay?
Tender touches in the bathroom? Gay…
A suck on the nipple? Definitely gay…
Three sets of ‘cuddles’ now: the first one is ‘BelAmi’ and one therefore knows this is set up for a porn shoot… but they’re gonna be gay, surely? Although some will just do it for the money!
These guys are obviously enjoying the hot tub and one, at least, is enjoying the other!…
No discreet bubbles at the poolside in the next!
And what about this couple taking a shower together? Common in public pools, yes: but crammed behind the glass in a domestic situation – what do you think?
As the number of boys in the showers increases, the probability of them being gay decreases, I think. And, as this lot are Russians and still in their swimwear or underwear, I think we can be reasonably confident here that the result is ‘not gay!’
#4’s smile really does it for me!
While on the water theme: seven guys get naked together on the beach (with their ‘bits’ slightly obscured here [not by me])… is any inference justified here or is just a lads outing and they’re getting naked simply ‘because they can’?
One thing is for sure – several of them could do with a good feed and some sessions in the gym. On which point – given that we’ve had lots of discussion over the pages of this blog about guys training naked – ‘gymnastics being ‘the naked art’ and all that – when you’re really working out hard and sweating, the cool air wafting over your body is a great feeling. we all like to get our shirts off but some, where permitted, will go the whole hog. They don’t have to be gay, do they? Certainly not if they’re training alone!
Nor, necessarily, if they’re with a like-minded mate!
They do look they are focused on finishing the set rather than on each other!
Three guys in their underpants on the beach now. There’s something about the look in the nearest guy’s eyes…
Next, an enigma. Eight lads, looking buff, oiled up for the occasion, bow ties, possibly strippers although the tight jeans and tied shoes don’t go with that theory – now what lies through that door? A load of hen-party girls up for a feel? Or a load of gay guys up for a feel? Are they gay themselves? You decide!
To be honest, I think I know the answer here. I have a memory of seeing a series of pictures of a Danish ‘coming of age’ ritual in which the boys (drinking only Coke here I notice) serve the girls a meal and perform dances and acrobatics for them. Maybe someone can confirm that.
Lads can enjoy being together without being gay… and in some situations like this final one, who knows?
I’m not sure they actually look as though they enjoy being together – but that forms a neat link into the previous post (below)!
Enjoying Being Together
August 6th 2018
July 30th 2018
Time to add some new stuff here – couples (possibly gay and definitely so in some cases) doing what they like to do.
Applying the body oil. Nice. I could have cropped the bottom of that one – but I’ll leave it to you to decide.
Does Being Naked = ‘Gay’?
July 25th 2018
I wonder which of these two pictures – that one on the beach or this next – most shouts ‘gay’ to you?
I think it is the second one, and that simply enjoying being naked with other guys doesn’t necessarily mean you should infer anything in particular. The question comes up when all-male gyms allow naked training (and the literal meaning of ‘gymnastics’, remember, is ‘the naked art’ and doesn’t refer to rings and high bars anyway!). Given that there is at least a photographer in the room, are these guys training naked because it feels good rather than trying to be seductive? Cool air wafting around a sweating body? I think so.
Here first is the guy who I featured in the blog post introducing this item:
A while back we had a post on naked training with a report on a gym in West London from someone who attended a trial session. It is worth repeating that report in full I think:
“I saw your piece about NKD Training and as I went to that actual training day, I thought I’d drop you a quick report.
“Trust my timing in that the weather here has finally turned from unseasonably warm to very typical November cold. I got there at 3.30 with rain sleeting down and a bit of trouble tracking the place down. It’s easy enough to get there on public transport with tube and bus stops close by. It’s on an industrial estate and the gates are being fixed or upgraded or something. Anyway I did finally find it.
“It looks like it a physio/rehab gym clinic during the week so it’s not that big and around 1/3 of the space is taken up by a boxing ring! It has enough aerobic and resistance machines and free weights for the amount of people it can hold.
“I was met by Paul and completed a medical questionnaire and then had the afternoon structure explained. The first hour is for anyone to warm up, lift weights or use any machines on their own initiative so it would not be useful for gym beginners. There were about 15 guys there when I arrived and although Paul explained that the first hour was ‘clothing optional’ everyone was naked. Although it was my first in anything like this, I stripped down to just trainers on my feet and walked in. It really is quite a nice feeling being naked around weight training guys. After the initial interest everyone got on with whatever they were doing and I found myself a bench and started some dumbbell chest presses. My only complaint was that the gym was too cold – and that’s not a look you want! I think they need to start your practice of using each other as benches, a warm body would have been really been nice!
“Being stretched out on a bench, dick on show, however, didn’t feel at all strange and you stop noticing after a while. Guys kept arriving and all went naked until there were about 30 of us at 4.30 and the start of the class. We were all ages, sizes, shapes and ethnic groups, predominately gay I’d say but no one’s asking so who knows.
“The first half of the class was aerobic which is not really my thing but Paul is very skilled at including everyone no matter their level of fitness. There was always an easier and harder way of doing anything. The second half of the class was more intense circuit training which I preferred. Again there was easier and harder ways of doing each exercise. I teamed up with a really lovely tanned hunky French guy (it’s not easy to concentrate when ‘do we do 10 reps’ is said in a dreamy French accent) and we encouraged each other through it – there wasn’t any cold bodies after that!
“We ended with a warm down and stretch although I would have preferred for all of us with a BMI of 18 – 25 to pile into the boxing ring and warmed and stretched each other! I guess you can’t have everything!!
“Overall I really enjoyed it, it really did feel very liberating and natural to be training naked and I’ll probably go again when the weather is warmer! The bit I enjoyed most was lifting weights naked but the cost is about as much as I pay my local gym for the whole week. I would however recommend it to anyone who just wants to get their kit off with other guys and to those who seriously lift weights.
“It would be great if this really took off and more gyms started naked training sessions – come on all you lads in London, support your local naked gym!”
Another thought. What is implied by guys deliberately posing naked, like this ballet boy?
And what do you infer from two guys enjoying being together in their underwear? These first two surely have something to celebrate…
And here, what do you reckon about the boy on the right? Maybe the boy on the left cannot believe his luck – look closely… that unopened bottle of fizz might be there for a reason!
Your comments would be interesting to hear. Best to post on them on the blog post which introduces this entry.
Genuine Gay Love
July 17th 2018
I do try to avoid posting images which are obviously ‘staged’ (i.e. from a porn site or video still) – hopefully we again have ‘true love’ here…
This next actually may break the rule I just set, but the ‘two’ look genuine and I like the interposition of the third guy! Maybe his partner is taking the picture…
Now, how close should we get?
(OK, that one breaks the rule definitely. 19nitten site. But they are rather cute, nicht wahr?)
OK, I give in. Any couple who knowingly allow their activities in bed to be photographed is ‘staged’? Whereas this next may be a cheeky ‘catch’…
Finally in this group, a ‘shot in the dark’.
Cheeky Feet ‘n Stuff
July 9th 2018
These two pix don’t really fit anywhere on this blog, but we like them, so here you are!
Perhaps not to everyone’s taste – though I’ve made no secret of my liking for Dave’s feet. These next two do fit here, if only because the participants are almost certainly gay. Looks fun anyway. And the photographer has managed to keep things discreet…

Guys Who Care
Apr 2nd 2018
In the 1940s, expressing ones gayness was not easy. Posing for, and privately reading, “physical culture” magazines was one way: first today, from 1946, an athletic couple who took advantage of a sympathetic photographer’s skill to express themselves:
I invite you to look closely at the final picture there and explain how the top guy’s body seems to be emerging through the floor (or table) that the other guy is seemingly lying on!
Here’s a more modern ‘threesome’ montage:
Meanwhile, some more couples:
And just for a laugh…
Apr 15th 2018
Dave and I don’t happen to ‘do’ gay marriage as such – it just seems to us rather unnecessary. But we certainly subscribe to the next slogan…
…such as this handsome ‘Schwuler’!
…and now, a dozen more gay couples, sharing their love:
The next pair are likely porn actors, but it seems genuine love too…
Now, don’t look too closely here…
…or, indeed, here:
…and as for these two, really…
Quote of the Day…
“Why are You Gay?”
“I Wanted to Make My Life More Difficult…”
I’m not sure whether this next image is ‘Gay Expression’ or just ballet boys having fun… or just one for car freaks (or just freaks)… any which way, I post it here! It works best if you view from a distance…
…and now some couples for Easter Monday Apr 2nd 2018:

In our present location, a vacation centre which particularly welcomes gay (and fit!) guests, we invited a friendly pair to select 10 images which “say something” to them about their own sexuality: – no inferences should be drawn about the sexuality of the subjects, which are unknown to us. If any image offends, I will immediately remove it if notified. Here then, with no further comment, are the choices of Pavl and Petr.

Namaste: The Sacred Nature of Masculine Sexuality
Jan 31st 2018
Here are profound comments from a fan of another blog on, as he puts it, the sacred nature of our masculine sexuality. It is not some abstract understanding. It is a physicality that rises to spiritual quality:
“With regard to mutual masturbation, I’ve always felt there is something very sacred, very powerful even beyond the sexual context of the penis and testicles. Life is about growth and renewal at every level of existence whether it be an animal, plant or human being.
“The propensity of life is always forward and the catalyst of that momentum of existence is the seed. It begins the process of renewal again and again into infinity. Without the seed, there is no life. That’s why I believe men have been blessed with a very sacred and paramount responsibility not just in the evolution of physical life but in that of consciousness as well.
“While women are the nurturers of life, men are the force of life. That’s why I believe men have such a strong propensity to continue to spread the seed of life, regardless of the issues that may arise with man-made institutions like marriage and monogamy. Our responsibility is a divine one, rightly ordered as part of the mysterious plan of life. It is sacred, holy, beautiful.
“As such, I believe that the greatest way someone can honour a man in this respect and his “maleness” is to touch and hold his penis and testicles, the instruments of this greatly gifted responsibility with acknowledgment, awe and love. It’s similar to the Hindu word, Namaste, which means: ‘I recognize in you the place where we are both one.’
“To hold the weight of a man’s penis in your hand, to caress and adore it is to say: “I recognize you as a god, a creator of life in the great plan of God.” This sentiment can’t be any more deeply expressed than when you take a man’s penis into your mouth. There’s a reason that you kneel in front of a man in this respect, because the phallus and its power are worthy of our worship. That’s why so many ancient societies understood and revered the power of the phallus. I was in Italy several years ago touring the ruins of Pompeii and there were penises everywhere—moulded into the street tiles and on thousands of front doors. The penis was blessed and revered as a symbol of power, life, goodwill and vitality.
“Unfortunately, our society shames men into hiding that power or worse, disowning it. You can show a completely naked woman on film and it will only receive an R-rating. If a man’s penis is shown—in any context, not just sexual, the film gets an automatic NC-17 (aka “X”) rating. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t see this paradox as the media’s way of objectifying women. While the media and our society have certainly done that in the past, keeping the male phallus out of view is a way of training the public mind that there is something “wrong” with the penis. It’s a way of getting us to deny the power or the phallus, OUR OWN power and thus deny our own selves, our spirits.
“It’s not only the media. This prejudice goes back much further. If you look at much classic art (with the exception of Michelangelo who is thought to have been gay), you’ll see that the women in many paintings are freely nude and expressing their femininity while the men are nearly nude with a sash, leaf or some other convenient concealing device covering the penis. It’s a very, VERY subtle denial of power that we eventually learn. That’s why I won’t have any piece of art in my home that has a nude male with his penis covered. I don’t care what “master ” painted it….
“The only way to have a real experience and start KNOWING some things is with another human being. The blogs aren’t experiences (as great as they are). They’re intellectual exercises. Your body isn’t intellectual. It’s visceral. It doesn’t understand words. Its language is energy and passion!”
More Loving Twosomes
Jan 28th 2018
Do you love… or are you loved by… another guy? If you are, or even if you are not, but can understand those that do and can appreciate the freedom to express oneself that we enjoy in the West, savour the moment and then read on, about Henderson…
Jan 23rd 2018
Henderson is a young man from South Sudan who was forced to flee the country because his parents and close family threatened to kill him… because it had become clear that he was gay. Initially he fled to Cairo, which was a gay ‘safe haven’ until the authorities suddenly took a different line. Somehow, he found the money – possibly by prostitution – to get a flight to Libya, from where he hoped to get a boat across the Med to Europe with other refugees. That didn’t work out either and ,eventually, he was put on a flight to Sudan (not South Sudan, which by then had passed a new law criminalising any same-sex relations with a ten-year prison sentence. That didn’t work out either, and eventually he went back to Cairo, concealing his real ‘nature’, where he is currently ‘stuck’. Essentially, he has been ‘on the run’ now for nearly eighteen months.
For many, such treatment would lead to suicidal thoughts – “the only way out”. Not this guy. Instead, he encountered a journalist from ‘The Times’ (London) and told his story, which appeared in the newspaper about a week ago.
Those of us who don’t face death or imprisonment for being gay can maybe spare a thought for Henderson and for all those in his situation. And be grateful for the love that (by and large) our families have for us… “…even though…”
AND: it is not just South Sudan with such a policy: here are a couple of items about Chechnya:
Choosing ‘Mr Right’
Jan 19th 2018
Dave and I know exactly what we like to see in a guy… each other, for a start, and then some of our closest friends. But, just for fun, we’ve selected 20 young gentlemen here, with various “attributes”, whom you might like to ‘rate’ as suitable gay companions! In doing this, we make no suppositions about the sexuality of the guys pictured, all of which are unknown to us.
If you feel you want to comment about any of them, I suggest that you do so via the BLOG POST “Choosing Mr Right” which appears on the Home Page with today’s date. You can comment on this page, but it will appear only at the bottom of what will become a rather long trail as the content of the page increases, and your comments may go unnoticed by other readers! N.B. Numbers relate to the image below.
There you go then. Numbers apply to the pic below: best to comment (if you want to) on the Jan 19th 2018 blog post advertising this update, because your comments will be more visible. If you prefer, tell me privately on email@example.com
Jan 10th 2018
I love the angle on this next shot!
You might be interested in these books which develop this theme, along with lots of sporting/showtime activity and some (mis) adventure…

The next image is kind of a threesome, but it still fits here I think:

OK, that’s it so far. No nudity yet! Let me know what you think either by comment below or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
